Embarrassment is a complex and uniquely human emotion that plays a pervasive role in social motivation and interaction. Illuminating its causes and consequences, this engaging volume examines the personal, situational, and interactive determinants of embarrassment, integrating literature from clinical and social psychology, sociology, communications, biology, and other fields. The book is peppered with lively anecdotes and enriched by the most up-to-date findings, including data from the author's own research. From the evolutionary significance of embarrassment, to coping with chronic blushing, Rowland S. Miller highlights important recent discoveries and offers revealing insights into a key aspect of our social lives.

About the Author:

Rowland S. Miller, Ph.D., is Professor of Psychology at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas. In addition to embarrassment, he studies the processes that maintain happy relationships (and so is generally concerned with people coexisting peaceably and well). He is a past recipient of the Newman Award for Excellence in Research from the American Psychological Association and Psi Chi. This is his second book.
